Work-Shop

Our mission is to improve the well-being and lives of people who have a Learning Disability or Autism. We do this through varied and stimulating supported, purposeful work-based activities promoting well-being and independence, increasing life-skills and raising aspirations. We have our own manufacturing work activities and provide activities that enable interaction and collaborative working with the wider community, developing employment, work experience and volunteering opportunities.

What you will do

You will guide and enable participants to reach their potential in performing work-based activities as required. You will act as part of a team supporting a range of work-based activities, meeting the needs of those they support. You will work within agreed guidelines, policies and procedures and follow instruction as determined by senior support staff and your manager. You will motivate and enthusiastically support participants to ensure that all activities are stimulating and achievable.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for an enthusiastic, reliable, team worker. You must be an excellent communicator. You must be able to learn quickly and be adaptable. A creative flair would be an asset.  Experience of working with adults who have a learning disability or autism is not essential.

What you will gain

An understanding of the range of learning disabilities and autism and how these disabilities impact on the skills and lives of those with such disabilities and their carers. You will learn a varied number of manufacturing tasks in a team working environment. You will gain an understanding of the challenges and rewards of working in a not for profit service and project working. You will be able to demonstrate an understanding of person-centered working. You will gain an understanding of following guidelines and policies keeping accurate records.
